Legal scholar Natsu Taylor Saito will talk about her book Settler Colonialism, Race, and the Law: Why Structural Racism Persists on October 6 at 7 p.m. in Gasson, room 100. Saito is Regents’ Professor Emerita at Georgia State University’s College of Law. Her scholarship focuses on the legal history of race in the United States, the plenary power doctrine as applied to immigrants, American Indians, and U.S. territorial possessions, and the human rights implications of U.S. governmental policies, particularly with regard to the suppression of political dissent. This lecture is also the keynote address for the symposium, “Structural Racism in the United States: Engaging the Interstices of Migration, Indigenous Peoples’ Rights, and the Legacies of Settler Colonialism,” which continues the following day. Saito’s lecture is presented by the Lowell Humanities Series and cosponsored by the Center for Human Rights and International Justice and the Forum on Racial Justice in America.
